NPR Programs on Religion and Science

NPR’s “Fresh Air” this week is airing interviews with atheist Richard Dawkins and scientist/evangelical Christian Francis Collins on the issue of religion, science and how they interact and overlap. The interviews are airing Wednesday and Thursday, and are also available via podcast at http://www.npr.org/podcasts/. I found the Dawkins interview very interesting. He discounted methodological naturalism (the premise that there might be a God, but science could never tell us, so we shouldn’t investigate it–thereby giving naturalism a win without a fight), which I think is very noble of him. I am a believer that if God exists (a conclusion I affirm), he can be detected via science. I’m looking forward to the Collins interview tomorrow.
